Update on the Claymore Holdings LLC v. Credit Suisse AG Case Related to the NexPoint Strategic Opportunities Fund (10/04/19)

October 4, 2019 – The Texas Supreme Court released an order today on the case against Credit Suisse, AG, Cayman Islands Branch, and Credit Suisse Securities (USA), LLC (“Credit Suisse”), which granted a hearing of the case. The case was filed in 2013 by Claymore Holdings LLC, the Highland and NexPoint affiliate (together “Highland”) that pursued the collective claims on behalf of the Highland Income Fund (formerly, Highland Floating Rate Opportunities Fund) (NYSE:HFRO) (“HFRO”) and the NexPoint Strategic Opportunities Fund (NYSE:NHF) (“NHF”) (together the “Funds”).

Per the order, the Texas Supreme Court will review the case at a hearing scheduled for January 8, 2020. While this prolongs the legal process, it does not affect Highland’s conviction in our claims against Credit Suisse or our commitment to recovering damages for investors.

The total aggregate award stands at $393.2 million today; it is comprised of the $287.5 million judgment initially awarded by the trial court and now twice confirmed on appeal, plus $105.7 million in accrued interest. The award will continue to accrue interest in the event that the judgment becomes final.

Any final judgment amount would be reduced by attorney’s fees and other litigation-related expenses. The net proceeds would then be allocated to the Funds based on respective damages (approximately 82% to HFRO and 18% to NHF).

We do not know the exact timing of the Texas Supreme Court’s decision following the January hearing; however, the decision should be issued by the end of the Court’s term in June 2020 at the latest.

We knew this would be a long process but have been committed to recovering damages for our investors since day one.
